Transfer: Nwabali perfect for Orlando Pirates – Chabalala

Chippa United captain, Justice Chabalala believes his teammate Stanley Nwabali would be a perfect fit for his former club, Orlando Pirates.

Orlando Pirates are the latest club to be linked with the Chippa United goalkeeper.

The 28-year-old impressed for Nigeria at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire where the Super Eagles finished second.

Chabalala believes a goalkeeper of Nwabali’s calibre deserves to play on the big stage.

“We don’t want to lose any players, but for me, if you leave Chippa and you move to Pirates – I say Pirates because I love them, it’s a good thing,” Chabalala was quoted by SABC.

“It’s a good achievement in South Africa, if you move to a club like [Kaizer] Chiefs as well, the same goes for [Mamelodi] Sundowns, maybe even SuperSport [United].”

Chabalala, who was once in the books of Orlando Pirates, revealed that he has been chatting with Nwabali and advising on what his next move should be.

“I’m not saying all the other teams are not good or anything, they are okay; they are very good teams, but when you move from Chippa to Pirates, everyone knows it’s a good move,” he added.

“Everyone wants to play for Pirates, and I’m happy for him [Nwabali] – he’s a good boy. He has achieved what he’s achieved and he deserves to play for a big team, maybe not even in South Africa, but to go outside and make money also.

“But we’ve been talking, ‘How was it there at Pirates? How is Chiefs?’ I said, ‘I don’t know about Chiefs, but when you’re at Pirates, it’s like you are overseas.”
